Sky Lantern House

This whole house refurbishment and extension project looks to the rhythm of traditional dormers on an existing roof scape to inspire the radical transformation of a London home. Expressed externally as an assemblage of stacked luminous boxes, the rear extension evokes the ethereal quality of a floating ‘sky lantern’ at night. Internally new volumetric connections are forged across the 'lantern' whilst bringing diffuse natural daylight deep in to the plan.
